NORMAL – Illinois State basketball coach Dan Muller announced Tuesday night that junior guard Daishon Knight has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

According to McLean County Circuit Court records, Knight was arraigned last Friday on one count of aggravated battery in a public place, which is a Class 3 felony, and one count of resisting a police officer, which is a misdemeanor. He did not enter a plea. A status hearing is set for Oct. 4.

A native of Baltimore, Knight was taken into custody on Aug. 26. He posted a $3,000 personal recognizance bond.

“We are still getting all of the details, and we will continue to handle the situation internally moving forward,” said Muller.

A transfer from Odessa (Texas) College who signed with ISU in the spring, the 6-foot-1 Knight is expected to contend for the Redbirds’ starting point guard spot. He averaged 19.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists last season for Odessa and has two years of eligibility at ISU.

The Redbirds will have their first official practice on Sept. 30.

    Dan Muller, you and your "team rules" are such a joke. How are you going to have "team rules" but not treat every single one of your players the same when it comes to breaking those rules? Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't you just kick someone off your team for driving on a suspended license and having marijuana in the car (that WASN'T even his!) but your going to "indefinitely suspend" another player for aggravated battery in a public place & resisting a police officer? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? We all know that when you say your "indefinitely suspending" someone it means nothing! You say it so you don't look bad, so the time passes and people will hopefully forget about it and then in a couple days he will be practicing with the team like nothing happened. Let be real, you didn't kick Daishon off your team because he is YOUR recruit. I also find it hilarious that you said "We are still getting all of the details, and we will continue to handle the situation internally moving forward". I find it hilarious because when you kicked someone off your team just a few months ago it took you less than and HOUR to decide you wanted him gone. You didn't even know the full story nor did you care to find out but again, because Daishion is YOUR recruit you will take your precious time "handling the situation". Dan Muller you are a sad, sad excuse for a coach. I pity the people who have to look at you everyday and call you "coach". You should be ashamed of your actions and of yourself.
